Howling winds were back in the forecast with arctic air blowing in from the northwest.  It was a chilly day, with afternoon temps stuck below freezing.  Technically, our high for today was 39 degrees but that happened late last night, as the clock ticked over to 12:00am.  It really is another nudge from Old Man Winter that he’s just not done with us just yet…

Thank goodness for the high sun angle, though.  We still got some melting done today.  Which means areas of refreeze are a certainty overnight.  Temps will drop into the single digits and low teens.  Plus, the winds are still kicking through the next 24 hours, so wind chills tomorrow morning will be around 0!  Please bundle up the kiddos before sending them out to the bus stop.  It’s a very cold morning in store to start the work week.

Highs for Monday will be very similar to today.  With that cold in place and a frigid start, it will be difficult for temps to climb above freezing in the afternoon.  At least we get to keep the bright sunshine around.  Winds for Monday will continue to blow; 10-20mph with gusts up to 30mph.  You haven’t broken out the hula skirt just yet, right??

Well, have that hula skirt on standby.  Temps will gradually climb through the middle of the week, and by Thursday we could get to 60!!!  Can I get a “That’s more like it!?”  It does come along with some scattered showers, but I think precip totals will be less than 0.50″.  There could even be some breaks of sun on Thursday.  

If the showers dampen your excitement for 60 degrees, both days on either side of Thursday won’t be bad either.  Wednesday will be partly cloudy and near 50 – and Friday will feature more sunshine and temps in the low 50s.  It’s a brief boost above normal, but we’ll take it.
